Companies around the world are suddenly looking at their processes and are realizing they no longer fit for remote employees in this new era of virtual working. Many employees don’t have access to back-office systems, are without their traditional printing and scanning devices, and don’t have an IT department who can quickly set up ways to scan and send invoices or file important documents to internal business processes from their home.
As recently as a few months ago, companies relied on the ability to scan paper documents quickly into their processes. In this new day and age, many are now transporting boxes of paper to the homes of their employees when offices cannot be accessed in emergencies. These papers often have to be processed and then scanned into another system or shared via email.
For companies needing to scan paper documents directly into business systems - even while employees are working from home, Xenith Intelligent Workplace Services partnered with Kodak Alaris to create a pre-configured smart Scan@Home Solution built on the INfuse platform that integrates directly into line-of-business systems. Companies can now use a fully managed service to provide preconfigured scanners to virtual employees.
All the remote worker needs to do is plug in the scanner and scan a pre-printed smart set-up sheet to get started. Vital for virtual workers, the solution offers enterprise-level security, including a separate data path and control path to isolate confidential content for secure transmission from any location.
All workflows - such as sending the document to the right person, or saving the information in the correct repository, network drive, or back-end system are pre-configured by Xenith.
Scan one easy set-up sheet to automatically access your workflow - no PC or software required.
INfuse Management software from Kodak Alaris allows Xenith to manage the fleet, set-up the workflow, configure the devices, and allocate licenses- all hosted and operated by Xenith.
As companies adapt to a new way to work, there are indications that most will embrace more of a virtual workplace than they have in the past. With Xenith and Kodak Alaris, companies can quickly be up and running with this Scanner As A Service offering that requires no PC connection or local software. And the Scan@Home Solution setup is so simple virtual employees need no IT knowledge or training- they just unpack, plug-in, connect to the internet and scan a pre-printed barcode sheet to activate and start scanning!
